Women In Need (Win) transforms the lives of New York City homeless women and their children by providing a holistic solution of safe housing, critical services, and program services. It runs 13 shelters and over 400 supportive housing units across New York City. Through its work, Win provides women with skills needed to build economic independence and to change the trajectory of the lives of their children and families.
With UNFCU Foundation’s grant, Win will continue to support its successful Francine A. LeFrak Foundation Computer Training Program, providing 65 work-eligible women with vital services that help them achieve their financial independence. The graduates will be connected to job fairs, employers, and services that will help them attain livable wages and eventually allow them to move out of homelessness and into new economic opportunities.
